South Yorkshire based Senior Architectural Systems has helped make local history by playing a key role in the construction of the new Danum Gallery, Library and Museum in Doncaster.

Designed by architects Bond Bryan and built by main contractor Willmott Dixon, the new cultural and learning hub has been created following sensitive restoration of four existing buildings.  A key focal point of the scheme is the restored frontage of a former Victorian school which has been framed by Senior’s slimline SF52 aluminium curtain wall and showcased within a new steel-frame building.

The glazed façade, which was fabricated and installed by Senior’s supply chain partner Chemplas Ltd, also features Senior’s aluminium commercial doors.

Available as a mullion drained system which removes the need for visible drainage slots, Senior’s SF52 curtain wall can be specified as capped, silicone sealed or as a combination of the two for even greater design flexibility. Thanks to Senior’s in-house powder coating facility, the SF52 system is available in an almost unlimited range of colours and finishes.
